Y’all should know by now that the bands on Austin Town Hall Records are excellent, but in case you were having any doubts about that (you’re crazy) or were wanting more to love from these bands, you’re definitely in luck, as two of our very own have recorded live Songs From a Room sessions. Below, you can see the alt-country boys of Plantation do a rendition of “Your Bones” or catch the chill vibes of Summer Salt as they do a version of “Time Away From Home.” On “Your Bones” you get the bleeding emotional alt-country that Plantation does so well, and on “Time Away From Home,” Summer Salt go acoustic and allow the vocals to really soar. Take a listen and then go snag copies ofMostIntellectualand theGoing Native EP from the ATH Records Store.
Dear lord, there’s so much going on this weekend, so many releases and what not. Please, support one another and go out and listen to some great music, buy some stuff. There’s something for you all, so just get out there, hit up a show, grab a drink and have a rad weekend. Here’s my suggestions… Read more
Tonight, and tonight only, you should come out and join us at Mohawk for some ATH DJ Session. We’ll be playing some local vinyl, as well as my favorite garage, dance and indiepop hits…no laptops here folks. But, as if joining us for Happy Hour at 5 PM wasn’t good enough to cure your Monday blues, our friends Plantation will be following our set indoors, joined by Ghost Bunny and Pleasures. Really, you could spend your whole night at Mohawk and have a blast. Settle into your buzz while we play some hits, then enjoy some good tunes to round out the night. See you at 5 PM. Probably going to play this song.

Alright folks…I know it’s Halloween week, so everyone is looking for things to do, and shows to attend where costumes are accepted. Tonight, Monday, you’ve got one option, plus another show that should be on your radar. Hotel Vegas has a mellow show on the bill, which might be in contrast to what you’ve know from the venue, but don’t miss some of these acts, namely RF Shannon and Plantation; Plantation is the project of Carlton, who is also part of our boys Grape St. But, if you’re inclined to show off that costume you’ve been working on, you should head over to the Goblin-A-Go-Go at Mohawk this evening. That event is free and starts at 8 PM, featuring A Giant Dog, pumpkin carving, and contests and drawing galore.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/ToPutItBluntly.mp3]
